I’m not so sure I’m liking where they took the whole Hermione-Ron-Lavander triangle. :(

Harry flirting…a wee bit out of character methinks. Plus, what’s the deal with reading the Daily Prophet in a muggle underground? A bit of a give away isn’t it? What if someone saw the moving pictures? Tsk tsk tsk

Nice to see them showing the romantic side of the movie. Though i think Harry/Ginny deserved a bit more time (and this is coming from a Ron/Hermione shipper). Love Jessie Cave as Lavender, everybody is gonna hate her ;) Also love the scene where you see Hermione smiling at Ron when he’s playing Quidditch, so cute… SQUEEEE

When Harry says “She´s brilliant but we´re just friends” did he mean Ginny or Hermione??
Could be both. Probably Ginny, because of when he didn´t want to admit his feelings because of Ron. Mmm..I suppose Dumbly knows Harry and Hermione have always been friends (unlike some people.aham). But maybe he did mean it, him and hermione are just friends. Cos it might be when they were hanging out while Ron was…busy with Lavender.

I think that Dumbledore is inquiring about Hermione, and Harry is like, no they’re just friends. But, just in the trailer, they are showing Ginny footage.

I think Hermione chose friend, cause I think at that point she’s not sure what they are. Of course, they are friends, but after all those years and experiences and how she’s feeling about them now, they are “more,” but she doesn’t quite have a word for it.

Hmmm, Harry is truly out of character with the waitress. Oh well, they change a lot of stuff for the movies.

I think it’s interesting how they focused more in the romantic, funny side. Now I just want to see a more intense one! :D It was awesome though. :)
